<i>Veronica Mars</i>: Other 2004 Network Shows That Need a Reunion Movie

Along with cult favorite Veronica Mars, the fall of 2004 saw the debuts of such breakout shows as Lost, Desperate Housewives and House. Those series all lasted much longer than the perpetually low-rated Mars (which folded after three seasons) but the Rob Thomas-created teen detective thriller is the only one that's getting a feature-film reunion, thanks to its devoted fanbase and the good folks at Kickstarter.
